  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking parchment paper. Insert knife one-third of way up from bottom of tenderloin along 1 long side, and cut horizontally, stopping 1/2 inch before edge. Open up flap.
  • 2
    Keeping knife parallel to cutting board, cut through thicker portion of tenderloin about 1/2 inch from bottom of tenderloin, keeping knife level with first cut and stopping about 1/2 inch before edge. Open up this flap.
  • 3
    Press sides of tenderloin down so it lies flat. Cover with plastic wrap; pound with flat side of meat mallet to 1/2 inch thick. Spread mustard down center of tenderloin. Top with cheese slices, pickle relish and ham slices, folding to fit, if necessary.
  • 4
    Tightly roll up tenderloin lengthwise, and tie tightly with twine. Brush tenderloin with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 5
    Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tenderloin; cook 5 to 6 minutes or until browned on all sides. Transfer to pan; roast 28 to 32 minutes or to at least 145°F. Remove from oven; tent with foil and let stand 3 minutes.
  • 6
    Remove strings from pork; cut into 1/2-inch slices. Serve with extra mustard, if desired.
  • Pork tenderloins are sometimes sold in packages of two. If so, freeze the second for another time.
